The Nintendo Adventure Books is a seriesof gamebooks based on Mario and The Legend of Zelda games published from 1991 to 1992. The books require the reader to keep track of inventory items, Coins, and points. They are similar to the Choose Your Own Adventure series, but also have mini puzzles included to help the reader determine the correct choice of action.
